CANADIAN AMA ROAD RACER Misti Hurst will compete in three upcoming rounds of the AMA series in both the Supersport and Formula Extreme Classes aboard two EDR Performance-prepped 2007 Kawasaki ZX6R's under a new partnership with EDR Performance.
This is Hurst's 4th year in roadracing and only her second on a 600. In May of this year she competed in her first-ever AMA event at Infineon Raceway and surprised many by qualifying for the super competitive grid on a stock machine. She is the only female coach with the California Superbike School, where she travels to more than 70 school track dates at more than 14 different racetracks in the United States and is also a freelance writer for several motorcycle magazines.
"We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with Misti." says Eric Dorn of EDR Performance. "I have known Misti since 2002 when she first began racing her SV 650 in WMRRA and OMRRA events and am very impressed with how quickly she has worked her way to the very top.?
In 2006 EDR Performance took the #1 plate for WMRRA, set three land speed records and added several class championships to its already impressive list of more than 80. EDR Performance -built and -tuned bikes have won races in local, regional, and national competition, as well as having competed internationally.
The EDR Team comprises Eric Dorn, Jay Kallberg, Drew Pearson, Gary Guinn, Chris Adolphson, Nolan Igarashi, Gwynne Stark and Luke Morgan.
Hurst 's next AMA event is round 8 at Mid Ohio Sports Car Course, which Dorn plans to attend to offer trackside support. "This will mark the first time that Misti has ever ridden a bike with engine modifications," he says, "and I think that being trackside would be a big help.?
